Your Guide to Cosmetic Dentistry in San Diego: Six Month Smiles
While many of our patients know a great deal about Invisalign and the benefits that it can offer those needed orthodontic care, few know as much about another cosmetic dentistry option called Six Month Smiles.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles® is a system of clear plastic braces that do just what metal braces do – correct the alignment of the upper and/or lower teeth by slowly guiding them to the proper position – without filling the mouth with unsightly metal.
How does this work?
According to the provider, “Six Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth gently. Many people think that the accelerated braces treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.”
Six month smiles accomplishes this without any additional risk to gums or teeth, making it a safe option for many patients looking for straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile.
Six month smiles is designed for patients 15 years and older who are looking for better teeth alignment without the need for complete reconstruction.
The best part? The procedure takes only six months to complete (get it?).
